omhper (23455) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2011
Bottled. Clear mahogany colour, mid-sized head. Perfumy hops in the nose together with salt and minerally ash. Sweetish malt, dried out by a wealth of salty resiny hops, forms a mid sized body with clean, rounded mouthfeel. Some pleasant chocolate and grains is found undeneath, but resin grows further in the immensely bitter finish, pushing it off balance.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2011
Bottle. Dark reddish/mahogany colour with a beige head. Aroma: caramel, toffee, bread, nuts, dried fruit. Flavor: caramel, toffee, grass, dried fruit, grapefruit, lightly roasted malt, tea-like tannins. Not very sweet, but still rather malty. Bitter and a bit too harsh finish.

RuneStumo (2575) - Haugesund, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2011
13.08.2011. 0,33l Bottle. Systembolaget Strömstad. Dark brown to black beer with off-white head. Aroma dominated by hops. Medium bodied beer with good flavours of aromatic and bitter hops. Rather strong bitter aftertaste that leaves a dry bitter mouthfeel

GusL (15) - DENMARK - AUG 16, 2011
Bottle from Systembolaget, pours dark red/amber with a good head. A pleasant, slightly sweet malty aroma, but surprisingly hoppy taste. Not too much carbonation, which is good. All in all a very good dark lager. No doubt one of my favourites from St. Eriks.

AlbertC (277) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2011

Mad_Ferret (992) - SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2011
Bottle. Clear dark mahogany/deep red with a big beige head that leave some spread lacings. Aroma is sweet malty with toffee, some fudge, nutty, syrup bread, orangepeel and grassy hops. Taste is relatively sweet with caramel and a hint of chocolate but a pretty high piney, herby and slight perfumy bitterness push the sweetness down. For a while it feels more like a hop pumped english bitter more than a vienna. Body is medium with soft tickeling carbonation. I think Jessica is getting a bit more stabile, but the bitterness is still kind of harsh.

gyllenbock (7700) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2011
Bottle. Dark copper with a medium fluffy head. Descent but nothing sensational. Grass, some light toasted notes, fruit and nuts.
